Why You Shouldn’t Punish Your Children and What You Can Do Instead

When you get angry at your children for their misbehavior, the easiest way to “teach” them, is to use any kind of punishment — like sending them to their room, taking away their favorite toys, or even spanking them.

Instead, they suggest using other effective ways of raising your kids that could help you in the long run.
